Hybrid generator could make aircraft maintenance more efficient, effective, user friendly
Senior Airman Paul McFarland, 912th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, checks systems on an Edwards KC-135 Stratotanker using a hybrid flightline generator to power the tanker March 28. The hybrid generator employs a high voltage battery-based system to supply power to aircraft at the precise power loads demanded while allowing for an onboard generator to recharge the batteries when needed.
